7th women in ip International Forum

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Today, the ability to cooperate is a key driver for innovation and success. These mutual business activities take various forms, including licensing and distribution agreements, joint ventures and asset sales and acquisitions. It is inevitable that disputes arise as the occasional by-product of such activities.

Law suits are often time-consuming and they can be quite expensive so that Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) may be another option to deal with a disagreement between parties.

This year’s forum is dedicated to Alternative Dispute Resolution and its mechanisms.

We were able to set-up a highly attractive agenda for IP professionals having different levels of experiences with ADR. Overviews of the ADR- mechanisms, focusing particularly on mediation and arbitration in different jurisdiction, along with their benefits and pitfalls will be provided. There will be plenty opportunities to interact with the speakers and participants of the plenum discussion. Join and enjoy this journey into the world of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
